Last week my colleague James Stark shared with me a great Verge article (Speak Memory by Casey Newton) with me. Newton’s piece raises many questions about the role that technology plays in the grieving process, as well as about our own mortality in a digital age. My other colleague Sarah Backhouse had a chance to interview Casey this week, and his comments on the piece and its reaction are worth a listen.
